    Name: Singer-Songwriter Chuck Brodsky
    Date: January 7, 2020
    Time: 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM PST
    Event Description:
    Singer-songwriter Chuck Brodsky will return to Paradise to play at the Theatre on the Ridge on Tuesday, January 7th, at 7 pm as a presentation of the Paradise Community Guilds/Norton Buffalo Hall West. In a career spanning just over two decades, Brodsky has crafted a body of work in a style that critics have compared to Mark Twain, John Steinbeck and Flannery O’Connor. As much at home with comedy as tragedy, his story songs carry the full payload of a mature observer of human experience – irony, tenderness, bitter satire, surprise and delight, modern frustrations, a sense of danger and of longing. Conveying all of this with a catchy melody, a chalky baritone and a journeyman’s skill on the guitar is what helped to land 18 of his songs in the Baseball Hall of Fame’s Sound Recording Library. Larry Groce of National Public Radio calls Brodsky “One of the finest singer-songwriters in America” and Acoustic Guitar Magazine says, “Chuck Brodsky can sing, fingerpick, and strum with the best of ’em...a storyteller, and a riveting one at that...an underlying tone of warmth and compassion runs through all his carefully observed narratives.” Brodsky was born and raised in Philadelphia. His early songwriting influences range from Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie to Bruce Springsteen and The Rolling Stones. With 10 albums to his credit, he’s a main stage veteran of festivals throughout North America, Europe, and Israel. Brodsky’s tunes can be heard in several feature films. His song “Blow ’em Away” was recorded by David Wilcox. His passion for our national pastime is evident in two albums devoted entirely to baseball tales, with a colorful, off-beat cast of characters: the first white man to play in the Negro leagues, a pitcher who threw a no-hitter while hallucinating on LSD, a catcher who was a spy during World War II, and many more. Doors open for seating at 6:30PM. Cookies and a no host bar will be available throughout the night.
